Community Support & Sponsership
Bad Boy is a big supporter of community events and charities. From replacing a ten year old's stolen mountain bike to obtaining $30,000 in appliances for Ronald McDonald's House. As well, we also fundraise for the SickKids Foundation and Canadian Cancer Foundation. To date we have raised over half a million dollars towards local charitable organizations.
